Club History


 The club has played on its current ground since 1921, although it has grown a great deal in size since then. It is not just a cricket pitch. We are part of a much larger body called the Appleby-Frodingham Sports and Social Club (associated with British Steel UK plc) and the grounds are leased from the local authority, North Lincolnshire Council.
